80 Year Commemoration of D-Day


The 6th June 2024 marks the 80th anniversary of D-Day. Across the nation, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories beacons and lights of peace will be lit at 9.15pm in Commemoration of the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day landings on the five Beaches in Normandy, France. Holmes Chapel Parish Council is making plans for Holmes Chapel to be part of this act of commemoration. We will be marking this in the village with the bells ringing out for peace early evening, followed by the holding of a Churches Together Service at St Luke's. The Service will end with the reading of a National Tribute and lighting of a beacon in the grounds of St Luke's. We hope you will join us to commemorate this special occasion.
